    I just purchased the Tomtom 6 GPS bundle and am new to GPS on the Treo. Is there a program that will record where I traveled and then let me look at it on a map (maybe good earth or other) on the computer?

    If anyone knows of a program, I would appreciate it. Also if it exists, does it have to the be the primary application on the screen or can it run in the background while I use Tomtom?

    Check on Freeware Palm; I vaguely remember seeing an app like that a while back.

    Seems like this is one of the first times I truly want multitasking. KML Creator does EXACTLY what I want, but you can only have it running on the screen. If you switch out to any other application, it won't keep logging your route.

    There is no way to log with Tomtom 6, correct?

    Turns out that the new Garmin Mobile XT software for Palms and PPCs (replacement for Que software, coming in November they say) will do tracking. One can speculate that it will work in the background since Que works very well as a background application although Que doesn't have tracking.

    Meanwhile, I found that CetusGPS for Palm works well for tracking. With the Garmin GPS 10 receiver, I found the following settings on the "GPS Preferences" pages were needed: GPS Mode: "Normal" (NOT "Garmin"!), Connection Port: "Bluetooth," Connection Serial Driver:"Automatic"; Connection Baudrate: any will do, but the highest (57600) works best, doesn't skip like lower speeds did. GPSBabel converted the CetusGPS output to Mapsource .gdb perfectly. So, there's a freeware route to tracking on Palm OS, but not in the background.
